My mother and father own a farm in South Florida, she rarely ever leaves it. If she does well, she lives in South Florida where everyone speaks Spanish. Truly no need to learn English, plus with work and raising her kids she really never had time.

But she assimilated in every other way, it is not like she is walking around with a sombrero selling mango's on a stick.

Hey I like mangos and sombreos!!!! Lol
Sounds like a nice life.
At least she doesn't have to walk around talking to herself because no one else knows the language. LOL

LOL!!! He should give hurling a try. While it's Irish to the core, running around like a barbarian armed with a wooden club would probably really speak to his internal Viking!! And lets not forget that the Vikings DID settle and pillage a good deal of eastern Ireland!

Oh he'd LOVE hurling then!! I think when I first played it, it must've sparked off my genetic memory or something because a lot of it (including the logic of the game dynamics) came pretty naturally and I'm NOT a gifted athlete!! Gaelic football however took a bit of time to acquire the taste. But that's pretty much all I play now... It's hard to get enough folks here in the south to run around chasing a funky baseball armed with a potentially deadly weapon...
